Prolonged period of cloudy wet weather expected across PEI..

Monday May 8th 7:00am.. An area of cut-off low pressure centered in western NB/northern Maine this morning continues to meander in the area. A frontal system detached from this system is oriented north south across eastern NS and continues to be the focus of training tropical moisture streaming northward into Cape Breton where a special weather statement from Environment Canada remains in effect.  The low will move NE tonight which will push a cold front across the island bringing an end to the warm weather of late and ushering in unseasonably cool temperatures which will hang around all week. An upper level low pressure system currently in New England will very slowly drift eastward finally passing south of NS by Thursday. Energy rotating around this system will continue to keep cool unsettled weather across the Maritimes through Friday. It looks like some clearing just in time for the weekend with high pressure building over the region but need to watch a strong area of low pressure intensifying in the Atlantic just south of NS. will the high pressure be strong enough to keep this potential at bay.

Precipitation.. Looks like the wet weather will continue all week with chance of showers. Maybe some sunshine on the weekend..

Temperatures..Lat day of the mild weather is today then a cool down beginning tomorrow and staying cool through Friday. A warm-up back to normal expected on the weekend with a return of the sunshine.

Wind..Brisk southerly flow today shifting to easterly tomorrow. Light-brisk E-NE winds expected right through until Sunday of next week.
